Mother Hen 1.1.0 (iOS)

An updated version of Mother Hen, 1.1.0 iOS, has just been released. It is sporting some new features that were specifically requested by your fellow users.

Species Separation

If you have multiple different species of poultry, whether it be a brood of chickens, a gaggle of geese, a covey of quail, or a badling of ducks, you will now be able to record egg production separately. The egg production graph doesn’t yet support this separation, i.e. it still groups all eggs on a given day in one count, regardless of species, but the plan is to implement this in a future release.


Guineafowl are now available as a species in Mother Hen.
